A BIG thank-you goes out to all of the parents that help organize the Christmas party and mini meet, held in early December. Your time and effort was greatly appreciated, and we couldn’t have done it without you! It was a fun time had by all!

Finally, the mini meet greatly enjoyed by our skaters and parents alike – it was a good introduction to the newer skaters and families, as to how meet competitions are run and how much fun they can be!
